Congratulations to the Atlantic girls track team.  The average GPA for the second semester was 3.29.  This qualifies the 26 team members for “Academic All-State” honors as a team.  Team members Taylor Barry, Marissa Berns, Paige Kennon, Melanie Nielsen, Makenzie Holmes, Kristin Johnk, Erin Shannon and Brienna Steffens helped the effort by earning perfect 4.0 grade points.

Paige Kennon received the prestigious individual “Academic All-State” award.  In order to win this award you have to have a cumulative grade point of 3.8, an ACT score of 28 and must have participated in the state track meet.

Congratulations also to the seven members who received Hawkeye 10 “Academic All-Conference” awards.  They include Paige Kennon, Taylor Barry, Ali Krogman, Melanie Nielsen, Marissa Berns, Sam Petersen and Sam McConnell.
